Abstract

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a cancer of the immune system that is typically characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. Approximately 30% of all lymphomas are of Hodgkin type. Classical HL is the most common presentation (95% of all cases) and can be divided into four subtypes: lymphocyte predominance, nodular sclerosis, mixed cellularity, and lymphocyte depletion.
